I had fully intended to stay quiet until I finished the game (I'm not even close), but my god this soundtrack is awesome. Avoid looking at the comments or related videos. This track comes from the bonus album; I'm not sure where it plays in the game.

 
 

Well. See y’all when this ends. (For those of you wondering, the back of the steelbook is just black with the KojiPro logo.)


 
 

In November 2016, Amazon had a sale on unreleased games where they were all marked down by $10. I ordered NieR: Automata, Gravity Rush 2, Nioh, RDR2, and Death Stranding. I’ve watched Amazon slowly fulfill this order for three years. See comments.

Eastshade is really wonderful so far. In the first hour, my quests were to teach a child to paint, help a man get his head unstuck from a jar, and make a friend. I'd be more than happy to continue seeing nonviolent games in the mainstream like this.

 
 

Moments like this remind me why I’m a fervent supporter of Kickstarter.


 
 

This morning, I turned 1,000,000,000 seconds old. That somehow felt like a more substantial milestone than the past decade of birthdays.

 
 

Control joins Witcher 3, NieR: Automata, The Witness, and Bloodstained as my 5th Platinum. Absolutely remarkable game.

 
 

Astral Chain is cool but I’m going to be honest: I’d trade every one of these fucking Legions for a jump button. I’m confident saying you could skip this one and not miss what makes Platinum great.

 
 
 

Astral Chain has the steepest learning curve of any Platinum game I’ve ever played, barring W101 and Infinite Space. Fuck.

 
 

CDPR: “We’re pleased to announce Cyberpunk 2077 will have post-launch multiplayer!” Nintendo: “Hold my Kero Kero Kola.” (Also, Proto Man and Zero, but no X skin? Where’s my boy, Sakurai? He was in 4!)

 
 

Just finished Control. Remedy’s finest work to date. I liked how both James McCaffrey and Matthew Porretta played major roles in yet another passing-of-the-torch to the next Remedy protagonist. I probably missed Quantum Break references though.

 
 

GUESS WHAT TIME IT IIIIIIIIS! I’m going to be streaming Control as much of this weekend as possible, so leer at me on https://twitch.tv/shibboletho around noon EST I guess. *Edit*: LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE!


 
 

Found these in the attic. Manuals, too. SSB cartridge is missing, and I don’t know if Goldeneye still works but it’s in there. I wonder what they’re worth. #thanksmom


 
 
 

Yo, my friend has finally gone professional artist and did the art for this Munchkin-like card game. He doesn't see any additional revenue from sales, but if you see this game somewhere, take a look. It's called The Adventurers. I'll put a link below.

 
 

All of my favorite wallpapers have come from the incredible Omer Tunc: https://www.artstation.com/mertun <3


 
 

The FFIX music bug has supposedly been fixed on the Switch. Can anyone confirm?

 
 
 

SGDQ crossed the $3M mark. Incredible.

 
 

Four years ago, Koji Igarashi initiated a Kickstarter campaign for what was basically a new Castlevania. I immediately dropped about 1/3rd of my meager paycheck on it. Before Witcher 3, before Mighty Number 9, I backed Bloodstained. Bring on the night.


 
 

Remedy's Control looks awesome. Haven't played any of their titles since Alan Wake, but I'm immediately back onboard. Also, the OX team is great.

 
 
 

Going to continue streaming SOTN for the ?th time in about 10 minutes. Just past bad ending, ready to explore the caverns/catacombs, and gather the silver/gold rings. Maybe gonna hear the Fairy sing. https://www.twitch.tv/shibboletho

 
 

I’m going to do some homework, eat some food, and stream SOTN on Twitch. I plan on going live around 8 EST. https://www.twitch.tv/shibboletho *Edit: Live!*

 
 

Spring semester was great, but now that’s it over, I get to enjoy my summer break. And now that that’s over, I get to go back to class tomorrow. Fortunately it only lasts a month, which is enough time to have another class before Fall semester begins.

 
 

Grading my students' final multimedia projects. Some of them submitted podcasts. Listening to them in my office is like listening to a bunch of shitty audio logs for a really boring game about writing.

 
 

Semester over. I wrote 43 pages in the last 2 weeks. One year down; four to kill. Let’s. Play. Some. Fucking. VIDEOGAMES.
